Il existe un intérêt croissant pour la culture française à Londres. Vous pouvez presque entendre parler autant de français dansles rues de Spitalfields maintenant que lorsque les huguenots (les premiers réfugiés de Londres) y habitaient. L’immigration des huguenots s’est avérée être un cadeau de la France au monde. Leurs talents et leur sens des affaires ont transformé ce pays.

Les promenades racontent l'histoire de leur voyage à Londres, les persécutions dont ils ont souffert, et finalement leur assimilation dans la société anglaise. On vous fera connaître leur succès dans les domaines des sciences, des mathématiques, de la médecine et de la finance, sans oublier bien sûr les créations des maîtres tisserands de la soie, créations qui pouvaient coûter jusqu’à £400,000.

There is a noticeable growing interest in the French culture in London,. You can almost hear as much French being spoken on the streets of Spitalfields as when the Huguenots (London's first refugees) were here. The Huguenots were France's gift to the world and their commitment to industriousness, their talent and skills transformed this country.

The walks share fascinating stories of the Huguenots’ remarkable journey to London, about their persecution and assimilation and offer an insight into their achievements in science, maths, medicine, finance and as Master silk weavers, including creating fashions for both men and women that today would cost almost as much as Megan Markle’s wedding dress.
